Dense dark purple colour in colour, with a classic Coonawarra bouquet of black current, cherry and sweet vanilla oak characters. The palate demonstrates a classic ‘dry red’ style with rich midpalate fruit and density, balanced with fine Cabernet tannins and length.

A warm summer with clear nights helped to provide further concentration of colour and flavour in the grapes with an early April harvest. The individual parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot were picked on separate dates and fermented separately in a selection of small stainless steel vessels.

Each ferment was pumped over twice daily for enhanced extraction of flavours before being pressed they were transferred to a selection of French and American oak featuring 20% new oak. Each parcel was matured for 20 months before barrels were individually selected for the final wine.

Wine Orbit, Sam Kim
“Offering fabulous fruit purity with elegant complexity, the wine shows blackcurrant, cedar, thyme and floral aromas on the nose. It’s equally satisfying on the palate, displaying excellent weight and roundness together with silky texture and fine tannins, making it wonderfully harmonious and lingering. A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc & Merlot. At its best: 2022 to 2035.”
